About the site.
Second to None is a shrine and fanlisting dedicated to the character Cordelia from the video game Fire Emblem: Awakening. The shrine opened on April 11, 2014 and the fanlisting opened on May 11, 2014.
To be honest I'm not entirely sure how the idea of a Cordelia shrine came around. Something I knew though was I wanted to try making a shrine to a minor character as before I had only ever made shrines to main characters. Why not do something different? While I had several ideas in mind Cordelia stood out to me the most. Out of all the characters in the series she is perhaps the one I relate to the most so it seemed like a no brainer that I would want to make something for Cordelia. I don't remember much of what happened after that, but I remember the site starting out as a one page shrine and then turning into a multi-page shrine at some point after being approved for her fanlisting––later merging the two. The site has remained this way ever since and has probably even grown since then. I see nothing wrong with this, haha!
Naming the shrine was a little bit difficult. I originally thought to call the shrine "Genius" as that is a name Cordelia would get called a lot, but it felt lame, plus Cordelia hates being called such so that name was quickly dropped. I'm not even sure how but the name "Second to None" came into my head and I immediately latched onto it. It was like there was no way I was letting this name go. I feel the name fits Cordelia perfectly in her perfectionist ways and her goal to master whatever it is she sets her sights on. It's just so awesome and I love it so much! ♥
Currently we are on version 3 of the site which features Cordelia's Fire Emblem Warriors promotional art or something like that? I'm not really sure but it is totally amazing and I had to use it for a layout. I'm happy it turned out so well. The layout was made by me using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and then coded by hand using Notepad. The images used were found at Fire Emblem Wiki. Patterns used were found at The-Seduction.net and textures used I don't even remember where they were from anymore. The floral border used was from Free Pretty Things For You. Fonts used are called Mademoiselle Camille and Minion. Credit goes to Fire Emblem Wiki and Serenes Forest for some information used on this site. Previous layouts used may be found at my layout archive.
